Hawthorne Heights release new song “Constant Dread” (feat. Brendan Murphy of Counterparts)

Hawthorne Heights are making it feel like the mid-2000s again with the announcement of their eighth full length record “The Rain Just Follows Me” out this September. To make the announcement even sweeter is the album’s first single “Constant Dread” featuring Brendan from Counterparts. Mixing their brand of emo pop-punk with a heavy guest spot, the song hits every feeling you’d want it to. Let us know what you think of it below.

“The most unbelievable part of this story is that this entire album was written and recorded BEFORE the pandemic,” singer JT Woodruff shares. “All of this darkness and turmoil is basically a summation of the coldest and loneliest nights I’ve tried to reconcile for the past 17 years.”

“When writing, I tend to dig through memories, both good and bad. In, Constant Dread, I was searching through one of my favorite tour memories. Warped Tour 2017, in the tour bus village. One of our favorite hardcore bands, Counterparts, was hosting karaoke. As I was standing there, Brendan hit play on Niki FM, and then threw me the microphone, and as I was singing my own song to a jury of my peers, I realized that I need to loosen up. This should be fun, not agony. When I thought about that moment, while laying bed in the throes of the terror-filled gaze of the moonlight, I knew we needed to put Brendan in this song. And I’m so glad he said yes, because absolutely crushes it.“
